In Danish, "Skovbo" means to live in the forest. For me, the creative process is much like that. Sometimes it's a respite in sun-soaked copse, other times it's about slogging through thick underbrush in search of the perfect morel. Always, it's an opportunity to really look and find the beauty in the details.
Built on the aesthetic of my Danish heritage, Skovbo Creative blends more than 20 years experience in marketing, design and event planning for the financial services industry with a lifelong passion for design, photography, and presentation.
A Magna Cum Laude graduate of the University of Minnesota, I live and work in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota where I also contribute graphic design, photography and event management skills to a variety of causes.
I gained valuable creative and design skills at Kopp Investment Advisors where brand consistent designs across the company's marketing, client services and investor relations departments was the order of the day. For more than a decade, I have helped employers and clients develop corporate and brand identities. A strong background in print design includes experiences born of designing, producing and managing a variety of projects including brochures, annual reports, advertisements and logos. I understand the importance of producing pieces on time and on budget because of my tenure as a corporate designer. I also appreciate the value of a company’s long-term vision, and believe in the benefits of accurately and consistently reflecting and strengthening that message in all visual and written communications.
Skovbo Creative Photography can be seen at the Danish American Center in Minneapolis, MN, and Milton's VVB in Crystal, MN, and has been featured at Foxy Falafel in St. Paul, MN and at Olivia's Sugar & Spice in Three Oaks, MI.
